The festival of Karwa Chauth is celebrated every year by Hindu women all across India.
Karwa Chauth is the celebration of the beautiful bond of marriage which is shared by husband and wife. On this day married women fast for the whole day for the well-being and long life of their husbands. Married women do not drink or eat anything and offer prayers to lord shiva. They bring their fast to an end only after moonrise when they drink water from the hands of their husbands.This is how the holy festival of Karwa Chauth is celebrated with utmost excitement and devotion all over India.
This year celebrate this auspicious festival with the luxury of authentic Pahadi products. Uttarakhand is known for its eye-catching beauty and rich culture. The jewelry and clothing of Uttarakhand is also a part of this culture.
Pichora is a traditional outfit worn by the women of Kumaon. It’s a yellow/orange dupatta with red/brown or maroon polka dots. In the center, there is a Swastik sign with Shankh drawn on its four quadrants. Pichora is said to bring smiles to the faces of the women who put it on.
The Jewelry of Uttarakhand is also a very important part of the state’s glorious cultural heritage. If you ever visit the mountains of Uttarakhand, you will easily find the local women wearing Nath, Pochi, and Galoband. All these ornaments are a quintessential part of a Pahadi woman’s attire.
